Clarke: I love you.
Lexa: I'll always be with you.
Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)

Clarke and Lexa is the relationship between Clarke Griffin and Lexa. They are portrayed by starring cast member Eliza Taylor and recurring cast member Alycia Debnam-Carey. They debut in the seventh episode of Season Two.


Clarke Griffin and Lexa started off as enemies as Clarke's people and Lexa's people were at war with each other for the entire first season and the first half of the second season. They officially met in "Long Into an Abyss", when Clarke approached Lexa in order to put aside their differences and create peace between their people.

The pair were shown to be alike in some ways, and they grew closer as they worked to save their people from a common enemy. They shared a mutual respect and the task of leadership over their allied clans, often making hard decisions together. They kissed in "Bodyguard of Lies"; however, Clarke was not ready for a relationship so soon after Finn's death under Lexa's orders. Their relationship became strained after "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)", when Lexa betrayed the Sky People by retreating from Mount Weather in order to save her own people.

They reunited in the third season, when Lexa had Clarke brought to Polis. As Lexa worked to bring peace to their people, Clarke forgave her and they became allies again and later lovers. Lexa's Flamekeeper, Titus, disapproved of their relationship and during an attempt to kill Clarke, shot Lexa by accident instead. Despite Clarke's desperate attempts to save her, Lexa's physical body died from her wound in "Thirteen". Because Lexa's consciousness was saved in the Flame, Clarke was able to summon Lexa to aid her in the City of Light in "Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)". Lexa protected Clarke from A.L.I.E.'s Cult, and Clarke declared her love for Lexa before they were forced to part ways once more.

Clarke continued to mourn Lexa long after her death. Josephine Lightbourne, for example, noted in "Nevermind" that Clarke still cried when she thought of Lexa, six years since her death. Other characters also brought Lexa up in conversations with Clarke, sometimes to try to sway her opinion or to taunt her.

In the fifth season, Clarke's adopted daughter, Madi Griffin, was given the Flame and Lexa's consciousness was thus able to communicate with Madi. In "Damocles (Part 1)," Lexa told Clarke, through Madi, that abandoning Clarke at Mount Weather was her biggest regret in an attempt to keep Clarke from making the same mistake. Lexa's message helped Clarke decide to do the right thing in the end, while also driving her to tears.

The series finale saw Clarke take a test to determine the fate of the human race. During the test, the Judge took on the form of Lexa because she was Clarke's greatest love.

Throughout the Series

Clarke and Lexa meet for the first time

In Long Into an Abyss, the pair first meet when Clarke goes to Lexa's tent to make her an offer. When Lexa first sees Clarke she immediately recognizes her as the girl who burned three hundred of her warriors alive, however, Clarke points out that Lexa was the one who sent the three hundred warriors to kill the Delinquents. Clarke admits that she has come to make a deal but Lexa says that the issue isn't negotiable, however, when Clarke says she knows how to beat the Mountain Men Lexa allows Clarke to say what she wants to say. Clarke explains the Harvest Chamber to Lexa and explains that she managed to escape Mount Weather with Anya. Clarke also gives Lexa a piece of Anya's hair and offers her condolences. Lexa wonders if Anya died well and Clarke reassures Lexa that Anya died by her side trying to get a message to Lexa; the only way to take down Mount Weather is if both groups join together. Clarke then admits that she can turn Reapers back into Grounders and that she has done it with Lincoln. Lexa demands Clarke to show her Lincoln as proof. Clarke takes Lexa, as well as a few other Grounders, to the dropship. However, when they arrive they find out that Abby had failed at saving Lincoln. Lexa accuses Clarke of lying and tells her that the time given for the Sky People to leave Camp Jaha is up, and then proceeds to give her fellow Grounders permission to kill everyone in the dropship. Just as everyone prepares to fight, Abby manages to shock Lincoln and restart his heart. Lexa calls off her Grounders and leaves the dropship with them once she sees that Clarke was telling the truth. Later, Lexa and Clarke talk in Lexa's tent once again. Lexa admits that she is very impressed with Clarke being able to bring back Reapers, however, she says she needs one last thing before the truce between the Sky People and Grounders can take place. Clarke says she will do anything. Lexa says that she needs Finn in return for a truce since he was the one who created the massacre. Clarke is left speechless and shocked at the demand.

In Spacewalker, after Finn hands himself over to the Grounders, Clarke goes to see Lexa before his execution. Lexa tells Clarke that she cannot stop Finn from dying. Clarke agrees and points out that Lexa can, though. Clarke wants Lexa to show the Sky People how powerful she is and show them that she can be merciful by letting Finn go. Clarke wants Lexa to show the Sky People that the Grounders are not savages but Lexa just says "We are what we are". Clarke then tries to get Lexa to kill her instead of Finn and lists all the bad things that she has done to Lexa's people, however, Lexa points out that Finn is the guilty one. Clarke argues with Lexa and points out that Finn is not guilty because he did it for her. Lexa just tells Clarke "Then, he dies for you". Clarke realizes that the attempt to convince Lexa to let Finn go is hopeless so she asks to say goodbye to Finn and Lexa allows this. Clarke then mercy-kills Finn, stopping the Grounders from torturing him to death, and leaving Lexa shocked. The other Grounders try to charge at Clarke, however, Lexa calls them off.

Clarke and Lexa in Tondc

In Remember Me, Lexa tells Clarke that even though some of her people are not satisfied with Clarke mercy-killing Finn, she knows that Clarke's suffering will be much worse. Lexa then tells Clarke that Finn's body needs to be taken back to Tondc so a death ritual can be performed. Clarke agrees to this and Lexa allows her to choose some people to bring along. During the death ritual, Lexa allows Clarke to be the one to set fire to Finn's body. Lexa is impressed when Clarke says "Your fight is over" in Trigedasleng seconds before lighting Finn's body on fire. Later on, Lexa opens up to Clarke about having lost a lover, too. Her name was Costia and she was tortured and killed by the Ice Nation. Lexa then tells Clarke that she thought she would never get over the pain but eventually did. Clarke wonders how Lexa did it and then Lexa says she just realized what it really was; weakness. Lexa tells Clarke that she stopped loving and caring for people since "love is weakness". Clarke admits that she could never do that but Lexa tells her that if she doesn't stop she will put the people she cares about in danger and then walks away. When the Sky People are accused of poisoning Gustus Clarke denies it, however, Lexa believes that when Clarke plunged the knife into Finn's heart, part of her wished it was Lexa's heart. Clarke realizes that it was one of Lexa's Grounders who poisoned Gustus because the poison was in the cup, which he drank from, and not the bottle that was given to Lexa as a gift. Clarke proves it to Lexa by drinking from the bottle. Bellamy accuses Gustus of poisoning himself but Lexa says he would never hurt her, but Bellamy points out that Lexa was not the target; the alliance was. Clarke tells Lexa that she knows it wasn't one of the Sky People. Gustus admits he did it and is then executed for it, with Lexa delivering the final blow. Later on, Clarke appears to set aside her guilt regarding Finn's death, walking up to her persistent hallucination of him and stating "Love is weakness," hardening her heart, just as Lexa had done, and is then seen returning to the war room with Lexa.

Clarke and Lexa escape from Pauna

In Survival of the Fittest, Lexa and Clarke, along with numerous other Grounders, are planning their war with the Mountain Men. Throughout the planning, a Grounder named Quint tries to start trouble with Clarke because she burned his brother alive in a "ring of fire." Lexa forces Quint to stand down and he eventually does, however, Quint later attempts to kill Clarke while she is out in the woods, "getting some air." Lexa saves Clarke's life by stabbing Quint in the hand with her knife and gives Clarke the opportunity to kill Quint. However, Clarke hesitates and then distant growls are heard. Lexa recognizes the creature as Pauna by its growls and tells Clarke and her Grounder guard to run. Lexa stabs Quint in the leg and allows him to be killed by the creature as a distraction, buying them some time to flee. Later, the three try to fight off the giant gorilla. Lexa's guard is killed, leaving only Lexa and Clarke alive. The gorilla grabs hold of Lexa but Clarke shoots the gorilla repeatedly, forcing it to let go. The pair manages to hide. Clarke tends to Lexa's injury and Lexa chastises Clarke for not leaving her to die, calling it weakness. Clarke then informs Lexa that she saved her because she is absolutely necessary for the success of their alliance. The gorilla finds them again and tries to get inside the cage where Lexa and Clarke are hiding, however, Clarke opens the doors and allows it to run in. After the gorilla is inside, both Lexa and Clarke immediately run outside and lock the cage door. Clarke wakes up near Lexa and a campfire and hears the gorilla growling but Lexa assures Clarke that she is safe. As they are about to leave, Lexa stops Clarke and tells her that she was wrong and that Clarke's heart shows no sign of weakness. Clarke realizes how to take down Mount Weather. She explains to Lexa that the army is already inside of Mount Weather and they just need to be let out.

In Coup de Grâce, Clarke and Lexa are seen in a photograph together that was taken by the Mountain Men. Both Lexa and Clarke are the targets of the Mountain Men.

In Rubicon, Clarke heads to Tondc to warn Lexa about the missile that the Mountain Men are planning to launch at the village where the leaders from all twelve Grounder Clans will be. Clarke wants to evacuate Tondc but Lexa disagrees and explains to Clarke that if they evacuate the village the Mountain Men will know that there is a spy inside Mount Weather, and Bellamy's cover will be blown. Clarke argues that it's wrong to leave the people to die by the missile, but Lexa tells Clarke that they are at war and in war people die. Lexa points out that Clarke already knows this and that is why she did not warn any of her people when she was given the chance. They ultimately agree to sacrifice the village. The pair are in the woods when Clarke sees her mother. Lexa warns Clarke that there isn't enough time, but Clarke goes back to get Abby and leads her into the woods. The missile finally hits Tondc and causes a massive explosion, and multiple people are killed.

In Resurrection, Lexa finds Clarke on the outskirts of Tondc, in a daze. Clarke tells Lexa that she "could've warned them" and shows much remorse for leaving the people of Tondc to die. Clarke wants to go back and help them, however, Lexa points out that there is a sniper in the woods from Mount Weather, and Lexa argues that the Mountain Men might fire another missile if they see that Clarke and Lexa have survived. Clarke says she isn't going to let the sniper tell the Mountain Men that they survived the attack because she is going to kill him. The pair later meet up with Lincoln in the woods. The three of them continue after the sniper. In the morning, the group finds the sniper and he tries to kill all three of them, however, Clarke shoots him through Lincoln's shoulder as he holds a knife to Lincoln's throat. The three make their way back to camp. Lexa tells her people that "the dead will be avenged!", and she and Clarke begin making their way to Mount Weather, along with the Grounder warriors.

In Bodyguard of Lies, Clarke and Lexa are in Lexa's tent, waiting for the signal that tells them that Bellamy took care of the Acid Fog. Lexa is shown lying on her bed while Clarke is hovering over maps, worrying about the upcoming battle. Lexa tells her battle plans don't last long in battle and they can't move forward until the Acid Fog is disabled. She tells Clarke that she's doing the same as she did when she first took command, over thinking things while not being able to move forward. When Clarke expresses concern about Bellamy, wondering if she sent him to Mount Weather to die, Lexa shows some jealousy when she realizes Clarke cares for him. Lexa then says to Clarke that sometimes they have to look into the eyes of their warriors and tell them to "Go die for me". She tells Clarke that she "could be a leader your people look to. Pour their hopes and dreams into. Someone they will fight and die for." Clarke says she never asked for that and that she's just trying to keep them alive. Lexa then tells Clarke that she was born to be a leader, just like she was.

Lexa overhears Octavia confront Clarke about the missile. Clarke reassures Lexa that Octavia won't say anything to anyone, but Lexa points out that they cannot be sure. When Clarke leaves, Lexa orders one of her Grounders to go and kill Octavia. Once Clarke finds out that Lexa ordered another one of the Grounders to kill Octavia, she stops the Grounder from killing her and drags him back to Lexa's tent. Clarke is furious at Lexa. She tells Lexa that she cannot just kill anyone she distrusts, but Lexa claims she can. Lexa tries to make Clarke see that Octavia is a threat and if Clarke wasn't so close to Octavia she would be able to see that. However, Clarke argues that it's because she's close to Octavia that she knows she is loyal and never would expose the truth. Clarke also tells Lexa she has changed and can't risk the lives of her people anymore. Lexa wonders if Clarke is willing to risk everything on her feelings and Clarke says she will. Clarke then proceeds to call Lexa a liar because she hides her feelings. Clarke tells her that she "felt something for Gustus" and is "still haunted by Costia". Clarke says she can see right through Lexa. Lexa orders her to leave, but Clarke ignored this and also tells Lexa that even though she felt something for the two-hundred and fifty people in Tondc, she let them burn. Clarke does all this while advancing on Lexa, actually causing the Commander to take several steps back until Clarke corners her by a table. Lexa points out that she didn't let everyone die and tells Clarke that she didn't let her die. Clarke realizes that Lexa cares about her. Clarke says for Lexa to trust her but she says she can't. Before Clarke leaves, she says that if Octavia is harmed in any way she will tell everyone that they knew about the missile. After Clarke leaves, Lexa is shown to be affected and upset by her words.

Clarke and Lexa kiss

Lexa calls Clarke to her tent and explains to her that Octavia doesn't have to fear her anymore and tells Clarke that she does trust her. Clarke thanks Lexa, understanding how hard it is for Lexa to trust her. Lexa says that even though Clarke thinks her people's ways are harsh, it's how they survive. Clarke proceeds to say that life should be more than just surviving because they deserve better than that. Lexa agrees and kisses Clarke. Clarke kisses Lexa back and the kiss is long and passionate. Eventually, Clarke pulls away because she's not ready "to be with anyone" so soon after Finn's death. However, Clarke adds "not yet" and that gives Lexa hope that a relationship may happen in the future. Lexa gives Clarke a nod, showing she understands why she needs time.

After the Acid Fog is disabled, the two head outside to signal the rest of their warriors into battle. They are then seen walking side by side in the woods with the entire army behind them. They share another look at each other, before charging into battle with the rest of their army.

In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1), Clarke, along with some other Sky People, meet in Lexa's tent with some of her people. They review the plan to take down Mount Weather and begin chanting "Blood must have blood" in Trigedasleng. While at Mount Weather's door, Lexa asks Clarke what she is planning on doing after the battle, but Clarke says she doesn't know. Lexa asks her to come to Polis with her because it will change the way she looks at things, but Clarke points out that Lexa already has done that. The two press the button together that is supposed to explode Mount Weather's door, however, nothing happens. Later on, the Grounders and Sky People manage to get the door pulled open and Clarke gives them the signal to attack, however, Lexa stops them. Clarke rushes over to Lexa and sees Carl Emerson is with her, and wonders what is going on. When Clarke sees the Grounders from the Harvest Chamber exiting Mount Weather, she believes that the Mountain Men are surrendering, but Emerson says "Not quite". Lexa admits she made a deal with the Mountain Men; they will release her people and leave them alone for good as long as she lets them kill the Sky People for their bone marrow. Clarke is upset by this and says that Lexa doesn't care, but Lexa says she does care and that it's what she would have done for her own people, too. Clarke watches as Lexa orders some of her guards to take Lincoln as a prisoner and orders another guardsman to sound the retreat, letting Emerson go. Once the Grounders leave, Clarke is left upset and shocked by Lexa's betrayal.

In Wanheda (Part 2), Lexa and Clarke reunite in Polis, as Lexa had ordered Roan to bring her "Wanheda" so that Clarke wouldn't fall into the hands of Queen Nia. Lexa is angered that Clarke is presented to her injured, to which Roan replies that she didn't come easily, as Lexa expected. Lexa informs Clarke that a war is brewing and that she needs her to which Clarke spits in her face and proceeds to yell death threats as guards drag her out of the room.

In Ye Who Enter Here, a week has passed and Lexa has obeyed Clarke's wishes to be left alone, but tells Clarke that more pressing matters have come up. Lexa says that she is hosting a summit with the Sky People at sundown and that she will be returned to her people. Clarke questions why Lexa captured her just to return her to her people but Lexa says she saved her. Clarke retorts and says she could have used saving back on the mountain. Lexa then asks Clarke if she would have done something different if she had been offered the deal. Clarke says she wouldn't have betrayed her friends, but Lexa says she did by killing everyone in the Mountain. Clarke believes that Lexa is also at fault for the massacre but the difference between them being that Lexa has no honor and Clarke had no choice. Lexa then tells Clarke she wants the Sky People to become the 13th clan and that way, no one would dare make a move on them as they would be making a move on her. Clarke refuses and says that she knows everything Lexa has done thus far was to protect her power over the Coalition. As the events in Mount Weather made Lexa look weak, and her existence as the Wanheda compromises Lexa's influence even further. Clarke tells Lexa that she will never bow to her; and further adds that if Lexa wants her power, then Lexa must kill her and take it--otherwise she can float herself.

After her talk with Clarke, Lexa holds a meeting with the ambassadors of the Coalition. The Ice Nation ambassador wants to know why Clarke is still alive. He says that the Ice Nation will happily step in if this is Lexa's "weakness" again. Later that day, Lexa spars with the Nightblood children as Titus watches on. Titus asks Lexa why everything she does elevates Clarke when Clarke won't even see her. Lexa insists that Clarke is special, but Titus tells her to kill Clarke and take her power.

Meanwhile, Clarke is approached by Roan who wants her to assassinate Lexa. He promises Clarke that she will be protected by the Ice Nation in return. After her talk with Roan, Clarke asks for Lexa. When she comes to Clarke's room, Clarke attacks her with a knife and holds it against her throat. However, Clarke hesitates when Lexa makes no effort to defend herself and instead looks into Clarke's eyes and quietly whispers "I'm sorry". Clarke pushes Lexa away in tears while turning away and dropping the knife as Lexa says she never meant to turn her into this. Lexa tells Clarke that she's free to go and she'll have her escorted to her mother. Clarke stops her and accepts Lexa's previous deal. Clarke then goes to see Abby and Kane to tell them about Lexa's deal. Abby doesn't think that it's their concern if the Ice Nation wants Lexa dead, but Clarke convinces them that the Sky People would be better off under Lexa's rule.

That night, Clarke enters the throne room for the ceremony and bows before Lexa. Lexa tells everyone that the reason for the summit has changed and the Sky People will be joining the Coalition. As Kane is getting branded on behalf of the Sky People, Bellamy, Octavia and Pike burst in before realizing that Echo tricked them. When Lexa's leadership is threatened, Lexa considers the attack an act of war and orders everyone from the Ice Nation arrested and allows Kane, Abby, and Indra to head to Arkadia. When Lexa says that they need an ambassador from the 13th clan to stay, Bellamy tries to argue that it's not safe for Clarke but Lexa says she will be under her protection.

Lexa bows to Clarke

Later, Clarke is contemplating how the Ice Nation knew of the self-destruct mechanism in Mount Weather and Lexa says they'll figure it soon and thanks Clarke for staying. Clarke says that she stayed because it was the best thing for her people, which Lexa then corrects to "our people". Clarke warns Lexa not to betray her again and Lexa says that she won't as she gets down on her knees. Lexa then vows fealty to Clarke, swearing to treat Clarke's needs as her own and her people as her own. Clarke takes Lexa's hand, accepting the proposal.

In Watch the Thrones, Clarke is attending a meeting with the ambassadors of the 13 clans. Lexa's guards bring in Nia who was responsible for the destruction of Mount Weather. Lexa tells Clarke that Nia has been charged for crimes against her people and Clarke demands justice. Nia, however, attempts a coup but the vote against Lexa isn't unanimous due to Clarke not supporting it. Nia then issues a challenge against Lexa: single combat to the death. Nia chooses Roan to be her champion and when Lexa is asked who will be her champion, Lexa says that she is Heda and no one fights for her.

Clarke meets with Lexa later and begs her not to go through with the match as she is afraid that Lexa will lose. Lexa refuses saying that should she die today, her spirit will choose its successor, something Clarke needs to accept. Clarke refuses to back down and seeks out Roan in the Polis marketplace. She begs him not to go through with the match and offers him a chance to become King of the Ice Nation instead. Roan refuses to kill Nia himself but offers to help Clarke do it.

Clarke goes to Nia and lies saying she shall ally with her before beginning the blood oath. However, Ontari, who is guarding Nia, realizes it is a trick and that Clarke is trying to poison the Queen. Nia drips some of Ontari's blood onto Clarke's face as a message for Lexa. Clarke is shocked and tells Lexa she's never seen blood that color before and Lexa explains that it is nightblood, the blood of the Commanders. Clarke tries once more to persuade Lexa not to fight Roan herself. Lexa understands that Clarke is just trying to help but tells Clarke there is nothing she can do to stop this. Clarke says she won't just sit there and watch Lexa die and decides not to attend the match.

Clarke bandages Lexa's wound

Later, Clarke changes her mind and attends Lexa's match. Lexa says she is glad Clarke came and Clarke agrees. During the match, Clarke is overcome with worry when Lexa looks to be losing, and is visibly relieved when Lexa wins. That evening, Lexa enters Clarke's quarters to thank her for her support. Clarke changes Lexa's bandaging and jokes that Lexa is always talking about her death. After Clarke is finished, Lexa stands up and they bid each other goodnight before Lexa leaves the room.

In Hakeldama, Clarke and Lexa are returning to Arkadia with the body of the Ice Queen when they encounter the massacred Trikru army. Lexa is horrified and immediately plans to call upon the warriors of the twelve clans to attack Arkadia but Clarke convinces her against it. Clarke convinces Lexa to let her go to Arkadia and try to fix things. Clarke later returns telling Lexa she was unable to convince Bellamy and she instead tells Lexa instead of attack she should have a ceasefire. At first, Lexa is against it before eventually agreeing to "blood must not have blood."

In Bitter Harvest, Lexa is asleep as Clarke sketches her when she awakens from a nightmare. Clarke reassures Lexa that it was just a dream but Lexa assumes it was not just a dream but in fact a warning. Titus enters the room with a crate which he opens to reveal Carl Emerson. Emerson immediately attacks Clarke but the guards pull him off her and Lexa demands he be locked up.

Later, Clarke finds Lexa and Titus discussing the fate of Emerson. Titus believes he should die and Lexa asks for Clarke's opinion. Clarke admits she agrees with Titus if Lexa wants her advice. Lexa then tells Clarke she isn't looking for advice, she's looking for a decision. Clarke enters the throne room to perform the death ritual on Emerson when she stops and instead gives Emerson his life, though he is banished from the lands under the Coalition. Some of the grounders are upset though Lexa calms them by stating that Clarke is leading them to a better future and that the crimes of the Mountain can not be answered by one man.

In Thirteen, Lexa stands with her Nightblood novitiates on Ascension Day when Titus enters the room with Semet who has Octavia prisoner. Lexa is furious that Titus would bring this to her on Ascension Day and asks Clarke for her opinion. Clarke admits she would do anything for her people and Lexa decides to blockade Arkadia, saying that any Skaikru caught across the line would be subject to a kill order. Clarke confronts Lexa about the kill order but she tells her nothing can be done. She then offers for Clarke to stay in Polis as her guest as Titus enters. Titus tells Lexa her feelings for Clarke are putting them both in danger but Lexa declares she is more than capable of separating her feelings from her duty.

Clarke and Lexa in bed

Clarke is met with Octavia who tells her they'll need to leave Polis soon. Clarke tries to find an excuse to stay, but Octavia insists and tells Clarke she has an hour to say her goodbyes. Clarke goes to see Lexa and tells her that she is leaving since her people need her. Lexa is understanding and Clarke says that hopefully "someday [they] will owe nothing more to [their] people." They kiss and have sex. Afterwards, Clarke asks Lexa about the markings on her back and Lexa explains that they are from her Ascension Day, each circle representing a Nightblood that died in her conclave. Clarke leaves Lexa's room and finds Murphy tied up as Titus points a gun at her. He fires and the bullet misses her, hitting Lexa in the stomach instead. Clarke tries desperately to save Lexa but eventually realizes there is no use. As Lexa is dying, Clarke tearfully recites the traveler's blessing and gives her a goodbye kiss. She then watches as Titus removes the Flame from Lexa's neck.

In Stealing Fire, Clarke grieves Lexa while the conclave to choose Lexa's successor is about to take place. Aden reassures Clarke that Lexa made him and the other Nightbloods vow to support Clarke's people if they become the next Commander. Clarke wants to ensure that Aden wins because he was Lexa's choice. When Ontari instead kills Aden and the other Nightblood children in their sleep, Clarke convinces Titus that this is not what Lexa would have wanted. With his help, Clarke escapes with the Flame.

In Nevermore, Raven, while under the control of A.L.I.E., uses Lexa's death to taunt Clarke. A distraught Clarke later begs Jasper not to destroy the Flame as it contains Lexa's consciousness.

In Demons, Raven, knowing that Clarke was close to Lexa, asks Clarke to try to figure out the Flame's passcode as it may have been a phrase Lexa often used. Clarke is under the impression that Lexa was an AI. Raven corrects her, saying that Lexa wasn't an AI, her mind was just enhanced by one. As she prepares to leave Arkadia, Clarke regards the Flame sadly as she thinks of Lexa.

In Join or Die, as Clarke and her friends drive around in search of Luna, Clarke is shown staring sadly at the Flame.

In Red Sky at Morning, Luna brings up Lexa's death and based on Clarke's despondent reaction, she realizes that Clarke cared for Lexa. Clarke tells Luna that Lexa was special and that she was working toward peace. Luna says that Clarke should be grateful to her, because if Luna hadn't fled her conclave then she would have killed Lexa in the second round.

In Perverse Instantiation (Part 1), after her attempt to make Luna the new Commander fails, Clarke regards the Flame sadly and apologizes to it (a.k.a. Lexa).

Clarke and Lexa reunite in the City of Light

In Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), Clarke takes the Flame in order to enter the City of Light and destroy A.L.I.E.. When Clarke falls into trouble, she subconsciously summons the spirit of Lexa from the Flame to aid her, and the two share an emotional reunion. Later, Clarke goes into a seizure and a worried Lexa cradles her in her arms. Clarke recovers and they share a kiss before they have to move on. As the people under A.L.I.E.'s control rush to stop them, Lexa orders Clarke to go while she holds them off. Clarke declares her love for Lexa, who in turn promises that she will always be with Clarke before attacking the charging people, buying Clarke the time she needs to pull the kill-switch and destroy the AI.

In Echoes, Abby notices Clarke's despondent expression as she gazes at the Flame. Clarke tearfully confesses to her mother that she loved Lexa, to which Abby replies that she already knew.

In The Tinder Box, Roan accuses Clarke of only looking out for her own people. He tells her that she grieves for Lexa but has learned nothing from her, noting that Lexa was able to rise above her loyalty to Trikru.

Clarke's drawing of Lexa hung up in her room

In We Will Rise, Clarke is shown gazing sadly at the picture she drew of Lexa in "Bitter Harvest". Niylah tells Clarke that Lexa would be proud of her, and that Lexa lives on through Clarke.

In God Complex, Roan tells Clarke that she was born to lead, and that Lexa knew this.

In DNR, Clarke tells the clan leaders that instead of going to war, all the clans can share the Second Dawn Bunker equally and that this is what Lexa would have wanted.

In Eden, Clarke is going through the remains of the Polis tower and comes across Lexa's throne buried under a pile of rubble. She regards it sadly as she thinks of Lexa.[1] She pulls a piece of the throne out from the rubble but this causes the entire structure to collapse, nearly killing her.

In The Warriors Will, Clarke decides not to remove the Flame from her adopted daughter, Madi, because she cannot bring herself to destroy it, presumably because it contains Lexa's consciousness. Clarke then asks Madi if she sees Lexa in her Flame-induced dreams. Madi tells her that she knows that what happened to Lexa is why Clarke is scared of her becoming the Commander.

In Damocles (Part 1), Lexa's spirit communicates with Clarke through Madi. Madi tells Clarke that all the Commanders in the Flame think that love is weakness, except Lexa. She goes on to say that every time she goes to sleep, Lexa shows Madi her betrayal of Clarke outside of Mount Weather which Madi states is because that was Lexa's biggest regret. Lexa shows Madi the memory to help push Clarke to avoid making the same kind of mistake. Lexa's message drives Clarke to tears, but helps convince her to do the right thing. After saving Echo, Clarke officially acknowledges Madi as Lexa's successor. Clarke tells Madi that she loved Lexa deeply, but it is nothing compared to how she loves Madi.

In Red Sun Rising, Murphy brings up the night Lexa died while airing his grievances with Clarke.

In Memento Mori, Clarke is trapped in her mindspace. A drawing of Lexa in bed from "Thirteen" is seen up close, accompanied by Lexa and Clarke's voices.

Clarke touches the drawing of Lexa in her mindspace

In Nevermind, Clarke wakes up in her mindspace and is immediately drawn to a drawing of Lexa. She touches it and a flashback to Lexa is shown. Lexa's death, represented by her throne, is later shown among the objects in the room containing Clarke's most painful memories.[2] Josephine Lightbourne finds the room and taunts Clarke about her deepest traumas, noting that Clarke still cries when she thinks of Lexa. Later, when Clarke is drawing in her mindspace, sketches of Lexa are seen displayed by her bedside.

In The Blood of Sanctum, Sheidheda, possessing Madi, taunts Clarke, telling her that Lexa had said she was strong, but accuses Clarke of being as weak as Lexa due to her love.

In From the Ashes, Madi, while experiencing the memories of past Commanders, creates a drawing of one of Lexa's memories of Clarke from "Ye Who Enter Here," which Gaia describes as "the night Wanheda knelt to Heda." Clarke smiles at the memory and says that it seems like another world.

In False Gods, Abby's wedding ring and the dead Flame are buried next to each other as a sort of funeral for both Abby and the Flame. Clarke bids both goodbye with a tearful "may we meet again."

Clarke is emotional when the Judge appears as Lexa

In The Last War, when Clarke takes the final test to determine the fate of the human race, the Judge takes on the form of Lexa because she was Clarke's greatest love.[3] Clarke is overwhelmed when the Judge first appears as Lexa, and she cannot resist hugging the Judge even though she knows that it is not really Lexa. When the Judge claims to be able to feel Clarke's pain, Clarke tells the Judge to feel the pain she felt when she was holding Lexa as she died.

The Judge later appears in Lexa's form again to tell Clarke that she is not alone because her friends have chosen not to transcend as well so that they can be with her. Overjoyed to see her friends, Clarke turns to find the Judge but is disappointed to realize the Judge as Lexa is no longer there.


Lexa: "You're the one who burned three hundred of my warriors alive."
Clarke: "You're the one who sent them there to kill us."
-- in Long Into an Abyss
Lexa: "You say you can turn Reapers back into men?"
Clarke: "Yes."
Lexa: "Then, prove it. Show me Lincoln."
-- in Long Into an Abyss
Clarke: "Please. You don't have to do this."
Lexa: "You lied, and you're out of time."
-- in Long Into an Abyss
Lexa: "You may have your truce."
Clarke: "Thank you."
Lexa: "I just need one thing in return."
Clarke "Tell me."
Lexa: "Deliver me the one you call Finn. Our truce begins with his death."
-- in Long Into an Abyss
Lexa (about Finn's execution): "You bleed for nothing. You cannot stop this."
Clarke: "No. Only you can. Show my people how powerful you are. Show them you can be merciful. Show them you're not a savage."
Lexa: "We are what we are."
Clarke: "Then, I'm a killer. I burned three hundred of your people. I slit a man's throat and watched him die. I'm soaked in Grounder blood. Take me."
Lexa: "But Finn is guilty."
Clarke: "No, he did it for me. He did it for me."
Lexa: "Then, he dies for you."
-- in Spacewalker
Lexa: "I lost someone special to me, too. Her name was Costia. She was captured by the Ice Nation whose queen believed she knew my secrets. Because she was mine, they tortured her, killed her, cut off her head."
Clarke: "I'm sorry."
Lexa: "I thought I'd never get over the pain, but I did."
Clarke: "How?"
Lexa: "By recognizing it for what it is-- weakness."
Clarke: "What is? Love? So, you just stopped caring? About everyone? I could never do that."
Lexa: "Then you put the people you care about in danger, and the pain will never go away. The dead are gone, Clarke. The living are hungry."
-- in Remember Me
Clarke: "No. No. We didn't do this."
Lexa: "Gustus warned me about you, but I didn't listen."
Clarke: "Lexa, please."
Lexa: "Tell me, Clarke. When you plunged the knife into the heart of the boy you loved, did you not wish that it was mine?"
-- in Remember Me
Lexa (about Clarke): "Jomp em op en yu jomp ai op." (Attack her and you attack me.)
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Lexa: "Leave me!"
Clarke: "No way."
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Lexa: "You should've left me behind. Now two will die here instead of one."
Clarke: "I'm still new to your culture but when someone saves your life, my people say thank you."
Lexa: "I'm serious Clarke, to lead well you must mark hard choices."
Clarke: "Hard choices? You're telling me that."
Lexa: "I've seen your strength, it's true, but now you waver. You couldn't kill Quint, you couldn't leave me to die. That was weakness."
Clarke: "I thought love was weakness."
Lexa: "Mockery is not the product of a strong mind, Clarke."
Clarke: "You wanna know why I saved you? Because I need you. God forbid one of your Generals becomes Commander. You may be heartless, Lexa, but at least you're smart."
Lexa: "Don't worry, my spirit will choose much more wisely than that."
Clarke: "Your spirit?"
Lexa: "When I die, my spirit will find the next Commander."
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Lexa: "Don't be afraid, Clarke. Death is not the end."
Clarke: "We are not dying here. I need your spirit to stay where it is."
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Lexa: "It's ok, you're safe."
Clarke: "How's your arm?"
Lexa: "Hurts."
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Lexa: "Wait. I was wrong about you, Clarke. Your heart shows no sign of weakness."
-- in Survival of the Fittest
Clarke: "No, no! This is wrong!"
Lexa: "It's also our only choice, and you know it. You could have warned everyone up there, but you didn't. You said nothing, not even to your own people. This is war, Clarke. People die. You showed true strength today. Don't let emotions stop you now. It's time to go."
-- in Rubicon
Lexa: "Victory stands on the back of sacrifice. You know that."
Clarke: "I want the Mountain Men dead, all of them."
-- in Resurrection
Lexa: "I feel your anger, Clarke."
Clarke: "Do me a favor, no more lessons."
Lexa: "You need to focus. We do what we must to survive. The enemy does the same. It's not personal."
Clarke: "It is to me."
Lexa: "You think killing the shooter will make you feel better, but it won't. The only thing that will do that is winning this war."
Clarke: "That's enough."
-- in Resurrection
Lexa: "That's what it means to be a leader, Clarke. The truth is, we must look into the eyes of our warriors and say, 'Go die for me.'"
Clarke: "If only it were that easy. Can we please just get back to the plan?"
Lexa: "No. You could be a leader your people look to. Pour their hopes and dreams into. Someone they will fight and die for."
Clarke: "I never asked for that. I'm just trying to keep us alive."
Lexa: "You were born for this, Clarke. Same as me."
-- in Bodyguard of Lies
Clarke Griffin: "What the hell is wrong with you? You can't just kill everyone you don't trust."
Lexa: "Yes, I can."
-- in Bodyguard of Lies
Lexa: "And you're willing to risk everything on that? On your feelings?"
Clarke: "Yes. You say having feelings makes me weak. But you're weak for hiding from them. I might be a hypocrite, Lexa, but you're a liar. You felt something for Gustus. You're still haunted by Costia. You want everyone to think you're above it all, but I see right through you."
Lexa: "Get out."
Clarke: "250 people died in that village. I know you felt for them. But you let them burn."
Lexa: "Not everyone. Not you."
Clarke: "Well, if you care about me, then, trust me. Octavia's not a threat."
Lexa: "I can't do that."
Clarke: "I can't sacrifice my people anymore. If you do anything to hurt Octavia, I'll tell everyone we knew about the missile."
-- in Bodyguard of Lies
Clarke: "You sent for me?"
Lexa: "Yes. Octavia has nothing to fear from me. I do trust you, Clarke."
Clarke: "I know how hard that is for you."
Lexa: "You think our ways are harsh, but that's how we survive."
Clarke: "Maybe life should be about more than just surviving. Don't we deserve better than that?"
Lexa: "Maybe we do." (they kiss)
Clarke: "I'm sorry. I-I'm not ready. To be with anyone. Not yet."
-- in Bodyguard of Lies
Lexa: "You should come with me to the Capitol. Polis will change the way you think about us."
Clarke: "You already have."
-- in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)
Clarke: "For those we've lost."
Lexa: "And those we'll soon find."
-- in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)
Clarke: "What did you do?"
Lexa: "What you would've done. Saved my people."
Clarke: "Where are my people?"
Lexa: "I'm sorry, Clarke. They weren't part of the deal."
-- in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)
Clarke (about the Sky People): "They'll all be killed, but you don't care about that, do you?"
Lexa: "I do care, Clarke, but I made this choice with my head and not my heart. The duty to protect my people comes first."
Clarke: "Please, don't do this."
Lexa: "I'm sorry, Clarke. May we meet again."
-- in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)

Lexa (about Clarke): "The deal was for you to bring her to me unharmed."
Roan: "She didn't come easy."
Lexa: "I expect not."
-- in Wanheda (Part 2)
Lexa: "I'm sorry. It had to be this way. I had to ensure Wanheda didn't fall into the hands of the Ice Queen. War is brewing, Clarke. I need you." (Clarke spits on Lexa)
Clarke: "You bitch! You wanted the Commander of Death? You got her! I'll kill you!"
-- in Wanheda (Part 2)
Clarke: "You went to all that trouble to capture me just to let me go?"
Lexa: "I went to all that trouble to save you."
Clarke: "You know when I could've used saving? When you abandoned me in Mount Weather."
Lexa: "Clearly you didn't need my help."
Clarke: "Clearly."
Lexa: "You're angry, Clarke, but I know you. What you've done haunts you and it's easier to hate me than to hate yourself."
Clarke: "Oh, I can do both."
Lexa: "What would you have done if their leader had offered you the deal? Save your people at the price of mine. Would you really have chosen differently?"
Clarke: "I don't betray my friends."
Lexa: "But you did. You had friends in Mount Weather."
Clarke: "Those deaths are on you, too. The only difference is, you have no honor and I had no choice."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Lexa: "You can't run away from who you are, Clarke. Join me. Bow before me and your people will be safe."
Clarke: "Bow before you? You don't give a damn about my people. I know why you're here. I made you look weak at Mount Weather and now the Ice Nation is exploiting that. Well, if you want the power of Wanheda, kill me. Take it. Otherwise, go float yourself because I will never bow to you."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Ice Nation ambassador (to Lexa): "For example, why is Wanheda still alive? If this is your weakness again, Azgeda will happily step in."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Titus (about Clarke): "She won't even see you, yet everything you do elevates her. Why?"
Lexa: "Clarke elevates herself. She's special."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Lexa (to Clarke): "I'm sorry. I never meant to turn you into this."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Clarke: "If you betray me again . . . ."
Lexa: "I won't."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Lexa (kneeling before Clarke): "I swear fealty to you, Clarke kom Skaikru. I vow to treat your needs as my own and your people as my people."
-- in Ye Who Enter Here
Clarke: "You don't stand a chance against Roan."
Lexa: "You've never seen me fight."
Clarke: "No. But I saw him kill three men in the time it took the first one to hit the ground."
Lexa: "If you're right, today is the day my spirit will choose its successor, and you need to accept that."
Clarke: "Like hell I do."
-- in Watch the Thrones
Clarke: "Titus is right, you're giving her exactly what she wants."
Lexa: "Only if I lose. I know you're just trying to help, Clarke, but there's nothing you can do here."
Clarke: "I can't just let Roan kill you."
Lexa: "If that is to be my fate, you must. You're driven to fix everything for everyone, but you can't fix this. I have to do this on my own and you have to let me."
Clarke: "I won't just sit there and watch you die."
-- in Watch the Thrones
Lexa: "I'm glad you came."
Clarke: "Me too."
-- in Watch the Thrones
Clarke: "Is this 'I told you so'?"
Lexa: "No, this is 'thank you'."
-- in Watch the Thrones
Clarke (to Lexa): "Do you ever talk about anything other than your death?"
-- in Watch the Thrones
Clarke: "Reshop, Heda." (Goodnight, Commander.)
Lexa: "Goodnight, Ambassador."
-- in Watch the Thrones
Lexa: "Thinking about home?"
Clarke: "Thinking about whether Arkadia is home. When I left, it had a different name. I was different."
Lexa: "You left a hero to your people and you return one. The Mountain Slayer returns with the body of the Ice Queen. You bring them justice."
Clarke: "You bring them justice."
Lexa: "We bring them peace."
-- in Hakeldama
Clarke: "Hey, hey, it's okay, you're okay. What were you dreaming about?"
Lexa: "Commanders before me, they speak to me in my sleep. I saw their deaths at war, at the hands of an assassin."
Clarke: "It was just a nightmare."
Lexa: "No. No, it's a warning. They think I'm betraying their legacy. Jus drein jus daun has always, always been the way of our people."
Clarke: "Listen to me. A ceasefire is not a betrayal. What you did on that battlefield stopped a war. Your legacy will be peace."
-- in Bitter Harvest
Clarke: "I'm sorry."
Lexa: "Don't be. You have to go back to your people, that's why I- that's why you're you."
Clarke: "Maybe someday, you and I will owe nothing more to our people."
Lexa: "I hope so."
-- in Thirteen
Clarke (tracing the tattoo on Lexa's back): "This is beautiful."
Lexa: "I got it on my Ascension Day. A circle for every Natblida that died when the Commander chose me."
Clarke: "Seven circles. I thought you said there were nine novitiates at your conclave."
Lexa: "There were."
Clarke: "What happened to number eight?"
Lexa: "Can we talk about something else?"
Clarke: "We don't have to talk at all." (they kiss)
-- in Thirteen
Lexa (to Clarke): "Don't be afraid."
-- in Thirteen
Clarke (to Lexa): "I will fix you. Just stay with me. (to Titus) Oh no, get away from her!"
Titus: "Forgive me, Heda."
Lexa: "You will never again attempt to harm Clarke. Swear it."
Titus: "I swear it."
-- in Thirteen
Clarke: "Hey Heda, don't you dare give up."
Lexa: "I'm not. My spirit will live on."
Clarke: "No! I'm not letting you die."
Lexa: "There's nothing you can do now. The next Commander will protect you."
Clarke: "I don't want the next Commander. I want you."
-- in Thirteen
Lexa: "Clarke?"
Clarke: "I'm here."
Lexa: "Ai gonplei ste odon." (My fight is over.)
Clarke: "No. No, I won't accept that."
-- in Thirteen
Lexa: "You were right, Clarke. Life is about more than just surviving."
Clarke (crying): "In peace, may you leave this shore. In love, may you find the next. Safe passage on your travels, until our final journey on the ground. May we meet again."
-- in Thirteen
John Murphy (about Lexa): "Hey, Clarke! I'm sorry. I know how much she meant to you."
-- in Stealing Fire
Clarke Griffin (about the Flame): "Is she really in there?"
Titus: "Of course she is."
John Murphy: "What does it matter who wins, huh? I mean, listen to me. If your girlfriend really is in that thing, then we have nothing to worry about, right? Clarke, let's just get out of here while we can."
Titus: "It matters. I've served four Commanders as Fleimkepa, none of them half as wise or strong as Lexa kom Trikru. The truth is, she was all those things even before Ascension. The Flame deepens what's already there. If the spirit of the Commander should choose Ontari, the Ice Nation will control everything, and Skaikru will face her wrath."
John Murphy: "Not really a silver-lining type of guy, is he?"
Clarke Griffin: "So how do we make sure Aden wins? He was Lexa's choice. You know that."
Titus: "And she will choose him."
-- in Stealing Fire
Titus: "You killed her. I pulled the trigger, but it was you."
Clarke Griffin: "Titus. You made Lexa a promise, remember?"
Titus: "Give me the kit."
Clarke Griffin: "I know you don't want Ontari to get the flame. She murdered those kids, children you raised. Lexa's spirit would never choose to do something like that-"
Titus: "Yes, she did."
Clarke Griffin: "You don't believe that."
-- in Stealing Fire
Raven Reyes (while possessed by A.L.I.E.): "Hell, I bet you got Lexa killed too."
Clarke: "Shut up."
-- in Nevermore
Clarke (to Jasper when he tries to destroy the Flame): "No, you can't! No, give it back! Stop! It's Lexa! Part of her is still in there."
-- in Nevermore
Luna: "You cared for her."
Clarke: "Yes. Lexa was special."
-- in Red Sky at Morning
Clarke (to the Flame that holds Lexa's consciousness): "I'm sorry."
-- in Perverse Instantiation (Part 1)
Lexa (to Clarke): "Our fight is not over."
-- in Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)
Clarke: "I never thought I'd see you again."
Lexa: "I told you my spirit would choose wisely."
-- in Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)
Lexa: "Clarke? Come back, we need you!"
-- in Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)
Clarke: "I love you."
Lexa: "I'll always be with you."

Abigail Griffin (as Clarke gazes sadly at the Flame): "I know that look."
Clarke Griffin (crying): "I loved her, Mom."
Abigail Griffin: "I know."
-- in Echoes
Roan (to Clarke): "You grieve for Lexa, yet you've learned nothing from her. She was Trikru, but she rose above loyalty to clan."
-- in The Tinder Box
Niylah (to Clarke): "Lexa would be proud of you. We're all your people now. She believed that, too. She lives on through you."
-- in We Will Rise
Clarke Griffin (to the clan leaders): "There is room for 1,200 people in here. We could share it equally. All of the clans can survive. That's what Lexa would have wanted."
-- in DNR

Clarke Griffin: "Do you see her, too?"
Madi Griffin: "I know it's why you're scared of me having the Flame."
Clarke Griffin: "Commanders die, Madi. All of them. Badly. I won't let that happen to you."
-- in The Warriors Will
Madi Griffin (about taking the Flame): "I did it because I love you."
Clarke Griffin: "I thought love was weakness. Isn't that what the Commanders in your head tell you?"
Madi Griffin: "Yes, all but one."
Clarke Griffin: "I think you should get some sleep."
Madi Griffin: "I don't want to sleep. Every time I close my eyes, I see you outside the door at Mount Weather, ready for war and then I walk away, leaving you there alone."
Clarke Griffin: "Let me translate that for you. Lexa protected her people by making a deal with the enemy, leaving Skaikru to die, yes, just like I've done here. I don't need ghosts telling me what I've lost to protect you, Madi."
Madi Griffin: "Clarke, she's not a ghost. She's real. They all are and you're wrong about why she's showing me that memory. Betraying you is her deepest regret. She's showing me that because she doesn't want you to make the same mistake she did. Please, Clarke. I know you're scared. I am too. But I have to do this and you have to let me."
Clarke Griffin: "Oh Madi, this is how we survive."
Madi Griffin: "It may be, but life should be about more than just surviving."
-- in Damocles (Part 1)
Clarke Griffin: "You're so special, Madi. I knew it the day I met you when you led me into that bear trap. All this time, you thought I was keeping you alive, but it was you who saved me. You are Madi kom Louwoda Kilron Kru, heir to Bekka Pramheda, successor to Leksa kom Trikru. I loved her so much, but it's nothing compared to how much I love you."
-- in Damocles (Part 1)

John Murphy: "And who could forget Lexa? Yeah, I was tied up that night too. Just a disposable pawn in your game."
Clarke Griffin: "That's not fair."
-- in Red Sun Rising
Josephine Lightbourne: "Memory is funny, you know? The formative stuff, the traumas, the things we can't move past . . . they live deep in the brain stem. These are the wounds we pay shrinks not to fix. These places control us, make us who we are. It's actually connected to the lower brain function . . . breathing, reflexes. It's why you cry when you think of Lexa."
Clarke Griffin: "Shut up."
-- in Nevermind
Madi Griffin (to Clarke, while possessed by Sheidheda): "Lexa kom Trikru said you were strong, but you're as weak as her. Your love has made you so."
-- in The Blood of Sanctum

Gaia: "The night Wanheda knelt to Heda. I'm sorry I missed that."
Clarke Griffin: "Seems like another world."
-- in From the Ashes
The Judge (as Lexa, when Clarke hugs her): "I'm not her, Clarke."
Clarke Griffin (doesn't let go): "I know."
-- in The Last War
